in the united states. but we do have smoke plumes from that wildfire, numerous wildfires still breaking out and not contained completely yet. the smoke will be just trapped due to this really strong high-pressure system. it's not really departing anywhere, so stagnant air across much of these situations. things are going to get really cool due to this cold front sweeping here across the great lakes region, and that may turn to sleet, so it could be the first snow or sleet possibly seen on this -- the first snow for the season. but warm and dry across much of these regions. and temperatures are not bad at all if you're in washington, d.c., at 27. still really summer-like here, but, yes, winnipeg at 9 degrees, and, yes, tomorrow's going to be the first day of your autumn in this continent. moving over to the european continent, things are going to be with showers, but sunny spells for the british isles to enjoy that weather until another atlantic storm moves into your region. dropping down to 15 in london, and stockholm only looking at 12. but keeping its heat here in madrid at 31 degrees. he

condemnation has given a strong message that the united states government not only condemns it, but has absolutely no support for such blasphemous videos or content anywhere. i think that is an important message. i think that should go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world. >> brown: but in iran, at a military parade, president mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the u.s. and others of promoting strife under the guise of protecting civil liberties. >> ( translated ): they are seeking to trigger ethnic and religious conflicts. they chant fake slogans of freedom, and claim commitment to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. >> brown: and back in pakistan, prime minister raja pervez ashraf called for the world to outlaw blasphemy. >> we are demanding that the united nations and other international organizations seek a law that bans such hate speech aimed at fomenting hatred and sowing the seeds of discord through such falsehood. >> brown: in the meantime, pakistan shut down youtube access after the web site refused to remove the anti- islamic video. and in france, auth
